Mental Health Science Meeting 2017

Registrations are now open for our next Mental Health Science Meeting – which takes place in London on 2-3 February 2017.

Our Mental Health Science Meeting is one of the largest international scientific events of its kind dedicated solely to mental health research.  

Now in its 3rd year, the meeting brings together researchers from across disciplines to explore cutting-edge new ways to understand, treat and prevent mental illness.

The 2-day programme includes keynote speeches from leading experts in the field, panel discussions, and a poster session, providing a unique opportunity to showcase ideas and develop collaborative research networks.

The theme for this year’s meeting is the emergence of mental illness. This follows the launch of MQ’s major new young people’s mental health research programme.
